Swedish Apple Pie

This pie was easy to throw together, not so easy to get out of the pan though so I am glad that I took a picture of the whole pie instead of a piece of it! :) The taste was pretty good, but I would definitely leave out the raisins next time... They just didn't taste good to me, but I am not a huge, have to have raisins fan!! So, if you are, try it with the raisins and see what you think! :)

Swedish Apple Pie

2/3 cups raisins
3 medium apples (about 2 2/3 cups), peeled and sliced
1 tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon nutmeg

3/4 cup butter or margarine
1 cup flour
1 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 egg, beaten
1/4 cup chopped walnuts
vanilla ice cream or whipped cream (optional)

Heat oven to 350. Place raisins in a small bowl, cover them with hot water and microwave them on high until they become plump, about 20-30 seconds. Drain the raisins, then combine them with the apple slices. Transfer the fruit to a 9 inch pie pan (it should be no more then 2/3 full). In a small bowl, mix the sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg and sprinkle the mixture over the fruit.

To make the topping, first melt the butter or margarine and set it aside. In a separate bowl, stir together the flour, sugar, salt and egg until they are evenly blended. Whisk in the butter or margarine, then spread the topping over the fruit and sprinkle on the nuts. Bake the pie until golden brown, about 40 minutes. Serve it warm, with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream, if you like.
